LOWENBRAU URTYP

Lowenbrau Urtyp. Or Lowenbrau Urtyp Vollmundig mit Charakter, to give it its full name.

Lowenbrau is probably the most internationally adventurous of Munich's Big Six and this is an adventurous effort even by their standards. 

This is a Dortmund-style Urtyp and they say it's "full-bodied with character". But it isn't.

This comes with a very clear pour and a nice head and it looks so clear and crisp that it's almost crystalline. 

But it's ultimately a bit disappointing. Initially, it's very soft and then you get hit with a lovely, unusual wave of spices. It's not hot and burning, like a ridiculous chilli beer, but it's definitely mildly tingly and that's kind of nice.

But other than that, it's like a very weak version of their standard, tasty helles, so it's a one-trick pony.
